I recently came across a memorial plaque to this officer of the Chatham Battalion in St. Edward's School, Oxford. 

Up till then I'd never known his full name, as CWGC records only his initials.

His full name was Walter Hayes Pickering Richards.

I feel better that, a hundred years after his death on Deadman's Ridge, Anzac, I can finally put a name to him.
Regards,
Bryn Dolan
